    not sure what resources you are looking for..
    you can just do 1/2 relevant MTA exams Id say the OS and Networking one.. but the Server one is also good.

    You really should just Google revision materials tbh as thats where I’d provide you the sources from. Have a look into Udemy and Safri books (which offer a ten day free trial) as they both provide revision material for all the MTA exams mentioned. Its up to you if you want to carry on with the A+ but tbh you seem to have enough resources to pass it, just seems like you are struggling with the material so maybe its not the exam for you and you should alter your strategy.

    Its worth mentioning that if you are not employed and on job seekers allowance you might be able to get funding for some training like a college course in IT so have a look into that.

    Good Morning,

    I would suggest you try Professor Steven Kaminsky exam preparation site certification review platform.
    Get the latest CompTIA exam detail information about exam details, exam scope, exam objective and the best way of exam preparation.

    Kind Regards

    Not sure if OP is still looking into A+, but I understand the struggle. I found the A+ more difficult than Network+
    In 2000, I passed the Operating Systems portion of the exam but failed hardware (friggin' printers section got me both times!).
    I was also going to school full-time, so I took a break from A+ studying. I finally returned to it in 2003 and passed.
    I mainly used two books, Mike Meyers' All-In-One and Passport. I read each book once and then would refer to the Passport as a quick reference. I purchased some practice tests and took those until I could pass those consistently.
